Mold Restoration

Your Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system can cause extensive water damage if it’s not maintained correctly. Common causes of HVAC water damage include a clogged drain, frozen evaporator coils, and pipes that are not connected correctly.

So, it’s essential to care for your HVAC system at least once a year. That helps to prolong the life of your unit and prevent additional heating or cooling expenses. The good news is that HVAC maintenance tasks are pretty easy to do and do not involve hiring a professional most of the time.
